Wow, guys, this is absolutely WONDERFUL. THANK you!
I also added Robbie to the Jenny Creek Trail Team at his request, so Timm, you got more help!

And Hulk: I do believe it was your idea to do these trail teams, and a wonderful one it was. Thanks.

It was pretty good.

Lots of info on Bunce and Lefthand.

Bunce has had the OHV staging area fenced off, to prevent damage. This pissed off some ATVers, but once they found out why and the reason for it, they were mostly pretty cool. One redneck actually showed up to the meeting, and aside from being a rude jerk to me, I was actually impressed that he showed the initiative to come to the meeting and find out just where the FS boundary was. Felt bad for the guy who was there from the fencing crew though...LOL.

There is talk of a kiosk going in on the Private land, since the FS will not have the time nor money to put in a new staging area/kiosk this year.

Carnage will be closed mid september. The challenge route planning is done, the engineer has been up there, and now they are waiting on finalized contracts for the construction to begin.

Fireman's Hill will be closed for restoration, as will much of the Upper LHC area, during the challenge route construction.

The emergency shooting closure seems to have been effective, so no more bullets flying above the heads of LHC OHV users.

Our Jenny Creek Work day is on the schedule and all lights are green for it.

LHC cleanup was a big success.

June 26th, I believe.



...One redneck actually showed up to the meeting, and aside from being a rude jerk to me, I was actually impressed that he showed the initiative to come to the meeting and find out just where the FS boundary was...

Was that the guy who came in late? Was he being an ass when I walked up to talk to you?!
